morning." charlie rose is on assignment so jeff glor is with us. good morning! >> good morning. good to be here. >> good to have you here. we're going to begin this morning with one of the most powerful storms ever recorded battering the philippines this morning. typhoon taeanke haiyan is packing winds well over 200 miles per hour. >> at least two people are dead and seth doane is tracking developments from beijing this morning. seth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, jeff and to norah. this super typhoon is massive, a category 5 storm. earlier today, authorities in the philippines said more than 12 million people were in its path. winds gusting up to 235 miles per hour tore through the heavily populated central and southern philippines today. entire buildings were barely visible as violent winds blasted rain. waves sent water pouring through
streets. super typhoons of this strength even have the power to blow apart storm-proof shelters. colleagues urge people living in low-lying areas to evacuate. this filipino social worker says some evacuees were still living in shelters after the 7.2 earthquake that rocked this region just last month. in all, more than 700,000 people were evacuated from typhoon haiyan's path. we reached aaron aspi with the relief group world vision. >> howling winds came crashing here in the rooftop of our building where i'm staying at. there's just a blanket of rain covering the streets. >> reporter: on average, 20 typhoons slam into the philippines every year. "we're scared whenever november or december come around because we've already experienced strong typhoons before," this resident of palowan island said. a typhoon just last year killed more than 1,000 people and caused an estimated $1 billion
in damage. now, this super typhoon is forecast to blow into the south china sea where it is expected to pick up strength again and could threaten vietnam later this weekend. jeff, norah? >> seth thank you. and president obama faces a political firestorm this morning as he travels to the gulf coast for a speech on the economy. for the first time he is apologizing to americans who are losing their health insurance plans because of obama care. more than 3 million people have received cancellation notices. our chief white house correspondent, major garrett is here with us in studio 57. major, good morning. >> well, good morning, everybody. inside the white house this week, the president and his top advisers debated how to handle the obvious, glaring discrepancy between what the president repeatedly said about insurance plans. you remember, if you like it you can keep it. and the reality of those on individual market losing their coverage. some in the white house urged the president to apologize. in an interview yesterday, the president did, at least partially. he did not apologize for what he
said but for what's been happening. a milestone in obama care. the first presidential apology to americans with canceled insurance policies. >> i am sorry that they you know, are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me. we've got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them. we didn't do a good enough job in terms of how we crafted the law, and you know that's something that i regret that's something that we're going to do everything we can to get fixed. >> reporter: as for that um ambiguous promise -- >> if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. if you like your insurance plan you will keep it. >> reporter: -- more regrets. >> we weren't as clear as we needed to be in terms of the changes that were taking place, and i want to do everything we can to make sure that people are finding themselves in a good position, a better position than they were before this law happened. >> reporter: the president said he's assigned senior health care advisers to see if they can work
within the law and with state insurance commissioners to reverse some of the insurance cancellations. senate republican leader mitch mcconnell dismissed the president's apology as half-hearted, and he called for legislative, not administrative, fixes. democrat mary landrieu of louisiana, up for re-election next year has introduced a bipartisan bill to let consumers keep their existing insurance plans. another bipartisan proposal would delay for one year obama care's $95 penalty for failing to sign up for insurance. west virginia democrat joe manchin said consumers need "more time to browse and explore their options." also president obama said he still supports health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius shielding her from fallout from the website debacle. the president said and i quote, "sebelius doesn't write code. she wasn't our i.t. person." norah and jeff? >> major garrett, thank you very much. see you next hour. a surprise this morning from the october jobs report. employers led an unexpected
surge, hiring more than 200,000 additional workers but the jobless rate ticked up to 7.3%. that's likely due in some measure to the partial government shutdown. this morning the miami dolphins player who claims he's a victim of extreme hazing has a new, high-powered lawyer. jonathan martin has hired a prominent sports attorney and last night he issued a statement claiming martin endured physical abuse. jim axelrod has new developments at the dolphins' practice facility in davie, florida. jim, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. and good morning to our viewers in the west. jonathan martin's attorney david cornwell says his client faced harassment that went far beyond traditional locker room hazing, that he endured a "malicious physical attack" by a teammate, and that jonathan martin's sister was the subject of vulgar threats by some other teammates. still, inside the locker room here at the miami dolphins' training facility, the blowback against jonathan martin is quite strong.
this photo taken in late september shows a smiling richie incognito and jonathan martin posing with a fan, and another shows the pair sitting together on a flight. nothing seemed wrong between the two, either in the pictures or the dolphins locker room according to players. >> we wish we would have seen something. nobody was really notified about anything or saw anything that was harmful. >> reporter: that is they say, until martin abruptly left the team just over a week ago following alleged bullying by incognito. he reportedly sent profane and racist messages to martin in one text message allegedly calling martin, who is biracial a half and then the n-word. still, questions are raised about the context of the messages and a teammate says incognito was vulgar but not vicious. sources tell cbs news that when a fight occurred between martin and dion jordan at a practice two weeks ago, incognito jumped in and defended martin. >> the guy you play next to is your closest buddy.
that's who you're going to war with every day. >> reporter: former teammate lydon murtha says the two players were friends. he perceived that incognito may have been tough but argues he had martin's best interests in mind. >> any position in a leadership role is to take a young kid and mold him into the best player he can be. it was trying to get him to open up and become you know a man in a men's game. >> reporter: this morning there are reports that richie incognito, who has been suspended by the miami dolphins will indeed file a grievance against the team. norah and jeff, back to you. >> jim, thanks. secretary of state john kerry has just landed in switzerland. that's where world powers could reach a breakthrough as early as today on iran's nuclear program. the talk of a deal is drawing criticism from israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. he calls it a bad deal. elizabeth palmer is in geneva. elizabeth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, prime minister netanyahu may have been briefed on the
outline of what's under discussion here in geneva but secretary kerry, who as you mentioned, has just arrived, has said there is no deal yet. in fact, he's here to meet the iranian foreign minister who is also the head of this negotiating team to try and, as he said, narrow the differences. that being said expectations are very high that there will be some kind of at least joint statement, if not a draft agreement, by the weekend. there is other foreign ministers that have come here some on quite short notice. we've got the british foreign minister, the french, the german and also the russian deputy prime minister has just arrived. it's important to note that this deal, if indeed we do get one, is not really grand, overarching the best deal that would see all the sanctions against iran lifted in return for iran cushing its nuclear program. instead, it's called a first step, a way of building confidence so both sides will compromise a little and it will set the stage for much more
comprehensive talks some time in the coming months. >> liz, thank you. and "60 minutes" has learned of new information that undercuts its october 27th account of an ex-security officer who called himself morgan jones. his real name is dylan davies and he recounted to lara logan in great detail what he claimed were his actions on the night of the attack on the benghazi compound. lara joins us this morning. lara, good morning. >> good morning, norah. well, you know the most important thing to every person at "60 minutes" is the truth, and today, the truth is that we made a mistake. and that's very disappointing for any journalist. it's very disappointing for me. nobody likes to admit that they made a mistake, but if you do you have to stand up and take responsibility and you have to say that you were wrong. and in this case we were wrong. we made a mistake. and how did this happen? well dylan davies worked for the state department in libya.
he was the manager of the local guard force at the benghazi special mission compound. and he described for us his actions that night, saying that he had entered the compound and he had a confrontation with one of the attackers, and he also said that he had seen the body of ambassador chris stevens in a local hospital. and after our report aired, questions were raised about whether his account was real. after an incident report surfaced that told a different story about what he had done that night. and you know, he denied that report and he said that he told the fbi the same story that he had told us. but what we now know is that he told the fbi a different story to what he told us. and you know that was the moment for us when we realized that we no longer had confidence in our source and that we were wrong to put him on air, and we apologize to our viewers. >> why were you convinced that
dylan davies was a credible source, that the account that he provided was accurate? how did you vet him? >> well we verified and said he was, that he was working for the state department at the time, that he was in benghazi at the special mission compound the night of the attack and that you know he showed us -- he gave us access to communications he had with the u.s. government officials. we used u.s. government reports and congressional testimony to verify many of the details of his story. and everything checked out. he also showed us photographs that he had taken at the special mission compound the following morning. and you know we take the vetting of sources and stories very seriously at "60 minutes," and we took it seriously in this case, but we were misled and we were wrong, and that's the important thing. that's what we have to say here. we have to set the record straight and take responsibility. >> last thursday the "washington post" ran a report that questioned the central parts of what davies had told
you. they cited this incident report right after the attack that he gave to blue mountain the security firm that he worked for. he told them that he never made it to the compound, that he was at his villa there. did you know about that report that incident report? >> no we did not know about that incident report before we did our story. when the "washington post" story came out, he denied it. he said that he never wrote it had nothing to do with it and that he told the fbi the same story he had told us. but as we now know that is not the case. >> but why would you stand by this report after dylan davies admitted lying to his own employer? >> because he was very up front about that from the beginning. that was always part of his story. and the context of it when he tells his story is that his boss is someone he cared about enormously, he cared about his
american counterparts in the mission that night and when his boss told him not to go he couldn't stay back. so you know that was always part of the record for us. and that part didn't come as any surprise. >> "60 minutes" acknowledged it was a mistake not to disclose that the book was being published by simon & schuster which is a cbs company. there are all these reports now that davies was asking for money. did he ever ask you for money? >> he did not. he never asked us for money. it never came up. >> so, how do you address this moving forward? are you going to do something on sunday on "60 minutes"? >> yes. we will apologize to our viewers and we will correct the record on our broadcast on sunday night. >> and have you been in touch with him since? >> we have not. after we learned of the latest news about the fbi report we tried to contact him but we haven't heard back from him. >> you've had no contact with him since then? >> not so far. >> and not about this latest news about the fbi report? >> no. >> lara logan, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thank you. a big change at grocery stores and restaurants.
the fda plans to ban trans fat from the food industry. the artery-clogging food additive is considered a major contributor to heart disease. >> this action will save lives. the cdc estimates that if we can reduce the levels of trans fat currently in the american diet we can probably save about 7,000 people from preventible death and prevent about 20,000 heart attacks. >> trans fats extend the shelf life of food and improves the flavor. they're used in snacks from microwave popcorn to cookies, packaged soups and biscuits. they're also found in stick margarine, vegetable shortening and ready-to-use frostings. and some restaurants use trans fats in fried foods. time to show you some of this morning's headlines.

san jose. the 87 on ramp from northbound 2-80 is now back open following a deadly accident this morning. lets get right good morning. 7:26. i'm frank mallicoat. we're following developing news down in san jose. the 87 on-ramp from northbound 280 now back open following a deadly accident that happened this morning. let's get to liz more on the traffic alert. >> reporter: they reopened those ramps within the last half hour. it's still backed up in the area. it was an accident involving a pedestrian. hit and killed on the freeway. traffic still jammed through downtown san jose. looks like beyond 101. and backing up now towards southbound 680. also, the fog is super thick this morning. there was a stall reported westbound on the bay bridge. traffic stacked up on the new eastern span and behind the pay gates, it is backed up solid through the macarthur maze. might want to consider bart all trains on time. that is your "kcbs traffic."
starting out with patchy, dense fog this morning, some visibilities down to a quarter mile or less in some spots. out the door, looking towards san jose, some of that fog there in the distance just beginning to lift. it should lift rapidly though. that's just a very thin layer. the temperatures mainly in the 40s and 50s although a cool 38 in the napa valley. this afternoon 70s sunshine inland. 60s and 70s around the bay. 50s and low 60s coastside. next couple of days a few more clouds with cooler temperatures. chance of showers tuesday.
just in with this the european space agency says that a 200-pound section from one of its satellites will crash into earth in the next few days but has no idea where it will land. then those officials are like but have a good weekend, everybody. take care. wait, what? >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour the reverend billy graham's 95th birthday party. the legendary preacher celebrated with hundreds of guests so we'll show you what made his last sermon special. and the new one world trade center in new york was billed to be the tallest skyscraper in america. why chicago says check the math. that story's ahead. the presidency of john f. kennedy comes alive this weekend on the national geographic channel in a dock yum drama based on bill o'reilly's book "killing kennedy."
rob lowe plays jfk, who's challenged at home and abroad. >> in a matter of days those missiles will be operational. we will have to act. >> i will not be pushed, not by khrushchev not by you, nor anybody else. one thing said i'm not going to allow nuclear missiles in the backyard. i want a nuclear marshal and hear something out of state. you were at a meeting. i want optioned in 40 minutes. >> bill o'reilly's latest book in his genre of historic men is called "killing jesus." good morning. >> hey, guys. how are you doing? >> great to have you. so, how do you think the movie turned out? rob lowe? >> yeah, he's good very tough accent to do but even more impressive to me than the accent was the body language. kennedy had a pa tradition bad guy, when you raise wealth in america, you carry yourself differently. and lowe, who isn't, is a mideasy western guy, got it so i was impressed with how well he
handled the whole thing. >> unknown actor versus a known actor? why rob lowe? >> you know i was the executive producer, but i don't really micro manage scott freeh, who produced it so i said fine they know him better than i do. >> what do you think was the most important thing we learned about jfk from your book and then what is in this documentary? >> that there was no conspiracy of the magnitude where there were other gunmen. you know americans are so very confused because there's a lot of money to be made in this conspiracy deal but jay edgar hoover, the fbi chief, wanted there to be a conspiracy. that's key to my book and the whole thing, because then he could control the investigation. most people don't know the dallas police department controlled the whole assassination investigation because it wasn't a federal crime, it was a murder. >> and they messed up. >> they messed up big time. so, hoover sent 80 agents down with orders to find a conspiracy, find it so i can run this, and they couldn't.
>> i want to turn to your other book, "killing jesus," which of course, we talked about "60 minutes." number one -- >> i remember that. >> yeah. >> you interviewed me right. >> i remember seeing that. >> have you recovered? >> yeah, i'm okay. you grilled me pretty hard but the holy spirit inspired me to do the interview with you. >> again? you're going to bring it up again? >> yeah, i've got a pen pal thing going on with the holy spirit now. it's number one, thank you "60 minutes," my biggest selling book ever. >> what about the historians who you know are saying behind your back, oh my goodness, bill o'reilly is not a historian, he's not a theologian and he's writing history books now. >> yeah, theologian, you're absolutely right about. there's no theology in "killing jesus," but they've been saying the same thing about me as a journalist for 35 years, he's not a journalist. i don't care what they say, it doesn't matter. i just want to do good work and the folks seem to like it so it's fine with me. >> what are the common threads you see in all these men that you've covered now? it's three books now. >> yeah personal charisma that's off the chart, number
one, a dignity, number two. that kennedy came to later in his life. and number three, just a miz mesmerizing quality that's indescribable. lincoln, kennedy and jesus all had that and we don't think of jesus as a man. that's why i wrote "killing jesus," because he was a man! and i'm taelg you inside his world, i'm putting you there and i think that's what people are responding to. >> can we talk about the election results this week because we saw chris christie win pretty resoundingly and do very well among hispanics in his state. do you think, though that he can make it through a republican primary? >> christie? >> yeah. >> yeah, sure. i mean christie's a good politician and some say he's a populist. he's glib, he knows how to handle himself -- >> do you think south carolina would -- that he could make it through a south carolina primary? >> look the republican party needs to win. so you know sure there are going to be right-wing people who don't vote for him, but i think if you are a republican that you're going to have to
find somebody to beat hillary clinton, and certainly, chris christie can give hillary clinton a run. >> what's his biggest weakness? >> i think he's impatient, he's an impatient man. and on a national spotlight, that's going to hurt him. i don't know he won't submit to an interview with me. >> he won't? >> he will not. so -- >> christie -- >> christie will not. i don't know he just won't do it. so, i can tell you policywise how versed he is because i've never seen him under that spotlight. he's going to have to get under it, whether it's me or somebody else but he has not come in. >> okay. finally, i just want to ask you, because i know you're a lifelong catholic, you go to church every sunday. about the pope pope francis. and we just learned how transformative this pope is. for the first time since the '60s, he's actually sending out a survey to ask catholics about everything from gay marriage to their views about contraception. what do you think about this pope? >> well he understands that the church brand is damaged, the catholic church brand is
damaged. he understands that if he wants to turn that around he has to be acceptable as a messenger. so, he's trying to say to the world, look i'm not closed-minded, my papacy is not about judgment it's about engagement. so, he's smart. i mean he's a great pr guy. i don't know the pope but what he's doing is trying to open up people's minds to again listen to the message of the catholic church which they had not been doing because of the priest scandals. >> bill o'reilly thank you for being here. >> guys, thanks for having me in. >> thanks. >> you guys are perky in the morning. aren't they perky? >> we're trying to be. it's the coffee. we don't stop. "killing kennedy" airs sunday on the national geographic channel. since world war ii every president, including kennedy, has met with the reverend billy graham. as chip reid reports, graham just reached a milestone, which also marks a turning point. >> let's welcome the man of the hour, my father, billy graham. >> reporter: last night, reverend billy graham celebrated
his 95th birthday choosing this occasion to preach what many are calling his final sermon. >> this is the message that's been on his heart for the last three years. >> reporter: but a man best known for traditional oration -- >> deep inside we need something else. >> reporter: -- delivered his last message in a very modern way. >> it's a confrontation that all of us must face. >> reporter: graham's sermon was a highly produced 30-minute film called "the cross." >> it can make you a totally new person. >> reporter: his family debuted the film at graham's birthday celebration in north carolina where hundreds of well wishers turned out to celebrate the minister. guests included donald trump and kathie lee gifford, former alaska governor sarah palin said graham touched her life. >> if it weren't for billy graham, i don't know where i would be. >> reporter: reverend graham rose to prominence as a great orator. >> are you sure that your sins are forgiven? >> reporter: in 1957 over
100,000 people filled yankee stadium to hear him speak. at the time it was the largest crowd the stadium had ever held. audiences as small as one were captivated by his presence. he was close with several presidents, from nixon to bush to clinton but it was his presence on radio and television that grew graham's flock. millions tuned in to his special programs. >> i've never seen such a hunger for the word of god and divine christ. >> reporter: graham's final sermon was broadcast in churches around the country and could be seen by audiences at home. and after almost a century, his message to the world remains unchanged, no matter how it reaches its audiences. for "cbs this morning," chip reid, washington. >> sad to see his final sermon. >> so inspiring. and it is a fight over height. which city really has the tallest skyscraper in america? the decision looming over new york and chicago. that's next on "cbs this morning."

this morning two of america's biggest cities are waiting to learn which one towers above all. it's a battle of the high-rises. dean reynolds is in chicago on the sky deck of the willis tower, 130 stories up. dean, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and jeff. well, you know chicago likes to claim that it invented the skyscraper, and the sears tower, which is actually the willis tower now, has generally been considered the nation's tallest building for the last 39 years. it's 1,451 feet to brag about, but its reign may be coming to an end on a technicality.
new york's new one world trade center measures 1,368 feet but the building's architects say a decorative spire atop the building should be counted, and if it is it would be a birth of the nation's symbol standing 1,776 feet or 325 feet taller than chicago's skyscraper. the relatively obscure council on tall buildings and urban habitat, headquartered here in chicago, will make the call. >> there can't be a tie, then? >> there can't be a tie. >> there's nobody abstaining -- >> you know there ain't two tallest buildings in the u.s. >> reporter: antony wood is executive director of the council, which will vote today and announce its decision next week. do you expect picketts? >> we don't, but we do expect a very lively debate. >> milestones of the century! >> reporter: from 1908 new
yorkers had the tallest then in 1974 chicago overtook them in the race to the sky. is new york about to reclaim bragging rights? >> it's a post modern building. >> reporter: we ask jen masengarb of the chicago architecture foundation for some guidance. >> willis tower still is tallest in terms of how high you can stand above the earth. but when you look at sort of what's totally built from the ground up then one world trade center wins. >> reporter: one world trade center architect david childs says winning is not the point. he wants his building recognized as standing 1,776 feet tall because of what that number represents. >> the height is important in that it symbolizes that moment in our democracy. 1776 can't be much more important than that. the thing about race for the height, that will always change. this one will always be 1,776.
the governor the port authority and america all felt strongly about that and that's why we've achieved that and it's important for it to be recognized as the height. >> reporter: well if chicago winds up in second place again, it can take some consolation from knowing that most of the world's tallest buildings, if not built here are designed here. jeff, norah? >> well there you go. >> okay dean. the consolation there. >> the council on tall buildings and urban habitat. that's fantastic. >> that's the the fog a little thick in spots out the door we go, in fact we have that dense fog showing up in the city of san francisco and around the bay and, well, those visibilities down to a quarter mile and less in some spots. delays at sfo half hour of arriving fights because of fog. high pressure making for a mild weekend start and then more clouds colling coming and cooler temperatures. 60s and 70s in most spots today, maybe some upper 50s toward the coastline. a little cooler over the weekend, slight chance of showers on tuesday.

were in its path. >> some in the white house urged the president to apologize. in an interview, he did, at least partially. >> i am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me. >> if you are a republican that you're going to have to deal somebody to beat hillary clinton. certainly chris christie can give hillary clinton a run. >> nobody likes to admit they made a mistake. but if you do, you have to say that you were wrong. in this case we were wrong. >> there are reports that richie incognito, who has been suspended by the miami dolphins will indeed file a grievance against the team. >> secretary kerry has said there is no deal yet. in fact, he's here to try, as he said, narrow the differences. >> there can't be a tie. >> there aren't two tallest buildings. >> you guys are perk ne the morning. aren't they perky? >> coffee. >> blockbuster announced that it will close all of its remaining stores in the u.s.

obama care's problems including the troubled healthcare.gov website. >> ultimately the buck stops with me. i'm the president, this is my team. if it's not working, it's my job to get it fixed. >> our chief white house correspondent major garrett is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> i know you've been doing reporting on this. what is he going to do to try to fix this? >> what is the president apologizing for and who is he apologizing to? the individual insurance market because of obama care have not only had their policies canceled but the premiums are higher than they are now and they don't qualify for subsidies. a small fraction of america. what the administration told me last night they'll work with state insurance commissioners and go back to the guts of obama care and see if they can fine tune the regulations to see if they can help these people because of the changes obama care's forcing on their individual insurance policies. >> who is going to pay for it? these are ultimately what the president calls junk plans bare bones plans, there's a minimum
requirement under obama care that you have to meet which people are getting better plans. but somebody's got to pay for it. >> that's not been determined. >> well when they talk about state insurance commissioners they mean getting some waivers at the state level or redrafting their own regulations, which they knew were going to cause these disruptions in the individual marketplace. let's not forget that. they had statistics in the federal register that told them this was going to happen. >> in your column you wrote about senator barbara mikulski who said there's a crisis of confidence. how do you get the confidence back of the american people and how do you get credibility back? >> the administration hopes this is a step in the right direction by providing at least an apology for those most aggrieved about what's happening in their personal lives because of this. but the administration knows they have to fix this. >> was that apology enough major? >> the voters will determine that. right now the white house knows it's under pressure. this is a debate that went on through the west wing for an
entire week. mr. president, what are we going to do this statement you made are we going to retract it will you apologize for it? yesterday the answer came on that. now they have to fix that. when will you tell the nation what this fix looks like. tomorrow would be better but it probably won't be that fast. >> midterms coming up before you know it. >> sure. >> can they get anything done right now while this is going on? >> done right now is an interesting question. many in the white house analogize this situation to the gulf oil spill because they back then remember they couldn't communicate anything to the country until the damn oil stopped leaking. big difference though. transocean and halliburton built that well. they built this one. and they don't believe they can say anything to the country that will be credible or reach this level of confidence until they fix the website. fp it's not done by the end of the month, they'll be in even worse trouble. >> unusual to hear a president say i'm sorry? >> sure it is. especially this one. they don't like to do it. they don't like to do it about
something that's big and identified with their administration as this one is for the president and the white house decided he had no choice. >> i'm sorry can be very effective, though. thank you, major garrett. america's fourth largest city is involved in a new video controversy. two days after admitting he smoked crack while in office another video is showing him in a very profane rant. >> hard to hear the rant with all the bleeps. the video first appeared on the "toronto star's" website minutes after it released he told
reporters that he was, quote, very inebriated. he said it was extremely embarrassing. unmanned aerial vehicles or drones are best known for targeting terrorists in other countries but this morning the faa is ordering what it calls a road map for drone use in the u.s. as ben tracy reports businesses and government can't wait to take flight. >> reporter: when a massive wildfire broke out near yoez night nags might national park this summer they got eyes from the sky. a predator drone viewed flare-ups. >> reporter: ben gielow is with the association for unmanned vehicle systems. what the government calls drones. in years it will be a $14 billion business. >> an unmanned system that can do tasks that are too dangerous, difficult or dull for a human. >> reporter: they can be used to monitor crops, real estate agents who advertise homes and police to track down fugitives.
drones are currently banned in the u.s. unless granted specific permission by the faa, but congress directed the agency to open the skies to drones by september 2015. that deadline is not likely to be met because of safety and privacy concerns. this week massachusetts senator ed markey introduced a bill calling for drone regulations. >> we need to ensure that these drones take off with ply vasrivacy protection attached to them. >> in a way that allows drones to spy on families in their backward s backyards, then that's not right. >> reporter: the faa says it will select six sites in the u.s. to test drone safety. there will be safety standards for drone designs and pilots will need to be certified, but in a statement the agency said the faa's mission does not extend to regulating privacy. the concern is that almost anyone with a few hundred bucks can make a drone.
>> the delta wing. >> reporter: when we profiled camera company go-pro they attached one of their $200 mini cameras to a remote control plane. it basically became a drone recording crystal clear hd video. the faa estimates that within five years, 7500 commercial drones will be whizzing through the sky. for "cbs this morning," ben tracy, los angeles. >> the food and drug administration says artificial trans fats are not safe to eat. o so they want the industry to get rid of all the additive. a ban will prevent 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths a year. seven years ago new york mayor michael bloomberg led the move to get trans fats off the menu in city's restaurants. >> we all wish we'd done things earlier. the important thing is that you get to it finally. >> mr. mark hyman is the leading
authority on wellness and health at lenox center in massachusetts. it did seem to take so long. >> it's a historic move a heroic move and about time. the government doesn't lead, it follows. the science has been there for 20 years that trans fats are harmful. they lead to heart attacks. they make your good cholesterol go down the bad cholesterol go up. leads to inflammation bad for dementia obesity, cancer diabetes. >> don't they make your food taste better? i know it's not healthier, but do they make your food taste better? >> this may sound like heresy but margarine was invented to make a better butter. flies probably don't land on the margarine, they land on the butter. the reason they call it shortening is it shortens your life. >> it's better to have butter than some types of -- >> a man-made product that has
no role in human biology and jams up your metabolism. >> one of the biggest challenges are what foods are trans fats in? processed foods. cookies. >> processed foods, cakes, microwave popcorn, whipped topping, all kinds of things that we love in america but they're killing us anyway. >> will these foods still exist. >> we do see reduction in trans fats since there's been food labeling that have to indicate trans fats. that will be accelerated. >> the grocery manufacturers of america says quote, since 2005, food manufacturers have voluntarily lowered the trans fats in foods by over 73%. the question is this was happening anyway. >> the truth is that about 4 to 7% of our calories are from trans fats in america. and some like junk food are much
higher. there's no safe level of trans fats, period which i believe as well. >> do you believe this is the beginning of something more of the fda weighing in on what's in our food? >> we have to be cognizant of why america is so sick and fat. 70% of us are overweight. one in two americans have a chronic disease. it's driving our federal deficit because of health care costs. we have to face it and be serious about it. >> i say moderation. >> you want the cupcake. >> i do.

writer for politico. he's now the editor in chief for buzzfeed.com that's covering serious news. good morning. >> thanks for having me on. >> let's talk first about twitter, the news of the day. twitter what an ipo yesterday. it exceeded expectations. >> the market clearly -- it's actually great for those of us in the news business. twitter's basically a news platform. this was a huge kind of bet on news and the bet on the notion that twitter wasn't this week's hot social network but the plumbing of the internet. >> you and i are not too different in age. when we started out in journalism, read the wires that came out on a printer, then we checked the wires. now twitter serves as a news feed. but what about the flip side of that, which is that anybody could be a, quote, unquote, journalist and so many mistakes are made and spread so quickly. >> i think those mistakes were
basically basically always made. in the early hours of any breaking news story, it was always a total disaster. there wasn't anybody tweeting that you had gotten it wrong. newspapers had the luxury in the newsroom, you go chase it down but you didn't have to write about it for a few hours. >> let's talk for people that haven't seen buzzfeed. it has 200 hits of people this panda thought you were going to stand up to your boss just for once. and you have these cute pictures of animals saying these cute clever things. now you're taking a turn in addition to that you want to get into investigative reporting, politics, you want to get into real news so to speak. >> i think our view is that the web of facebook and twitter has grown up. several years ago people would be sharing cute pictures the of their animals but over the last few years, the 2012 presidential campaign is where we came of age and where twitter came of age. you have the candidates
themselves, their staff and basically this central news conversation happening on twitter. and the kind of things that people share on those platforms are scoops great reporting, things that journalists like to do. >> the notion is serious but fun. someone might come and see the fun and then move over to the serious? >> no, the thinking is that most people like this. we don't try to make rand paul's plagiarism fun. >> that broke on your website. >> but in our view most people care about what's going on in the world also love cute animals. >> they recognize the difference. >> and they're capable of distinguishing. and they're comfortable seeing them all mixed up because that's what their facebook feeds look like. >> bob schieffer gave the speech as "face the nation" received the award. he said we get more information but access to information does not always equate with wisdom. even worse much of what we get
is just wrong. not wrong because somebody false, hateful and meant to harm. because it spreads so fast don't you think that's a real concern with twitter? >> yeah but i think basically what all readers now have access to is this messy, chaotic often confused conversation that reporters always were in on and trying to -- and our job was to you know take the best of it then show it to people. now people kind of see behind that curtain. i do think then our job changes a little. part of it is to assume that our viewers have seen all this crazy stuff, sometimes to debunk things they've heard. >> twitter gives you access to your own critics, a way to be self-critical in some ways. >> i do think there was a great tradition in newspaper journalism that you make stuff up. a couple of paragraphs you make these broad generalizations about the country and the politics. nobody is really calling you out for paragraph three and four,
these broad analytical statements. twitter is great, if there's bs in your article, someone will point that out to you polite and very fast. >> or not. >> even your son made an admission, no can't put him on. >> on halloween he and i collaborated on a post about the worst treats. someone gave him a pepper jack cheese spread. >> for halloween? >> congratulations, congratulations. buzzfeed. >> you might not be ready to start worrying about christmas shopping but toymakers are in full swang already. the biggest of them all, mattel. mo rocca got a look at their headquarters. here's a preview of his weekend edition of "sunday morning." >> this feels like a toy museum. walk inside and feel like a kid again. he-man fisher price, uno, the magic eight ball. so much to see and hear.

>> whoa! >> it's a mini detroit with its own car designers. >> did you think you would end up designing like grown-up people cars? >> yeah. i had been in the car industry for a little bit of time after graduating from college. and it wasn't that fun. and when i got here, i get to design whole cars and i get to design a lot of them. and they're all different. it's not always a minivan, a hot wheels minivan has a jet engine on it. this is way cooler than designing a real minivan. >> for "cbs this morning," this is mo rocca. >> you can see his full report on a visit to mattel this weekend on "sunday morning" right here on cbs. >> you know what i like about that story, is a, you can still get those toys and kids still like to play with them. >> we like anything that mo does, right? >> that's true. >> how do you not like a company that has a department just for doll hair?

streetline has looked at the problem of parking which has not been looked at for the last 30, 40 years, we wanted to rethink that whole industry so we go and put out these sensors in each parking spot and then there's a mesh network that takes this information sends it over the internet so you can go find exactly where those open parking spots are. the collaboration with citi was important for providing us the necessary financing; allow this small start-up to go provide a service to municipalities. citi has been an incredible source of advice how to engage with municipalities how to structure deals and as we think about internationally, citi is there every step of the way. so the end result is you reduce congestion you reduce pollution and you provide a service to merchants and that certainly is huge.

good morning. there's cars in there somewhere. you just have to peel away the layers of fog. here's a live look at 880 and it's slow now from san leandro. out towards the bay bridge, travel advisories still in effect because of all the thick fog. there's also a big backup. there was an accident on the upper deck just past treasure island. and it is still even at this hour stacked up into the macarthur maze. you're looking at 20 to 25 minutes to get on the bay bridge. dense fog advisory for the
richmond/san rafael and bay bridge. a crash leaving fremont southbound 880 approaching stevenson has been cleared to the right-hand shoulder but traffic is gridlocked from beyond highway 84. that is your latest "kcbs traffic." for more on when the fog will clear, here's lawrence. >> yeah. starting to clear along the coastline already but the fog is hang out inside the bay over the city of san francisco. looking towards the financial district. a pretty dense fog developing outside. we have seen delays at sfo of up to 45 minutes now into san jose. clearing out very nicely but you can see some fog there in the distance. more sunshine to come throughout the day today. that fog should lift rapidly. temperatures now in the 40s and the 50s outside. i think by the afternoon, we'll see a lot of sunshine as high as 73 degrees in concord. 74 fairfield. 74 santa rosa. along the coastline, cool 50s and some low 60s. and 60s and 70s inside the bay. a few more clouds over the weekend with some cooler temperatures. looks like veterans day will be partly cloudy, slight chance of showers on tuesday.
